Oracle Grid ComputingPosted: 21/12/2010
Enterprise grid computing is an emerging IT architecture that delivers flexible enterprise information systems that are more resilient and less expensive than traditional legacy systems. In grid computing, groups of independent hardware and software components are pooled and provisioned—on demand—to meet changing business needs.
The accelerating adoption of grid technology is in direct response to the challenges facing information technology (IT) organizations. With today’s rapidly changing and unpredictable business climate, IT departments are under increasing pressure to manage costs, increase operational agility, and meet IT service-level agreements (SLAs).
Using enterprise grid computing technology, IT departments can adapt to rapid changes in the business environment while delivering high service levels. Enterprise grid computing has revolutionized IT economics by extending the life of existing systems and exploiting rapid advances in processing power, storage capacity, energy and space efficiency, and network bandwidth.
This white paper provides an overview of grid computing, highlights the benefits of using it, and describes key grid computing techniques that enable IT resource consolidation, agile IT operations, predictable high performance and scalability, and continuous availability.
